What does the tail of the dragonfly do?
The tail of a dragonfly (called the abdomen) contains many of a dragonflies organs, including its reproductive organs and much of its digestive system. It also acts as a cooling system. The insect pumps blood through the abdomen. The long, narrow shape ensure that the blood stays close to the surface, allsoing they air to carry away excess heat.

Sort of. The "tail" of a dragonfly is no analogous to the tail of a vertebrate. Rather than being an extension of the spine (which a dragonfly does not have), this"tail" is ac…tually the abdomen containing large portions of the insect's digestive and respiratory systems as well as the genitalia.
An ichneumon wasp. Found out the hard way when one stung me on the face.
